|I'm trying to make a decision on what crankset to put on my new road bike and have a choice between the FSA Carbon and FSA Gossamer. I weight around 230-235lbs. I'm looking to get the more durable and stiffest crank that would work for my weight and since most bike components are typically built for the lighter rider. . . . . which is the best crankset for me? any suggestions?
|obviously an aluminum crank...||C-40|

|At your weight, a carbon crank makes little sense. Most carbon cranks aren't quite as stiff as aluminum cranks. You'll save money and grief by sticking with something stout.
I use the FSA carbon crank, but I'm 100 pounds lighter.
